Fun, golf, games, food and drinks, prizes and more at the beautiful Ironwood Golf Course in Sussex, Wisconsin! The Great Irish Open is held every September. For those that have played before you know how much fun this is and for new players, it's a great way to meet some good folks who are both good and bad golfers! Wormburners, shanks, hooks, and the occasional great shot all make it a fun-filled day. On top of that, we raise funds to support Irish Music . . .how cool is that! Proceeds go towards the Ward Irish Music Archives' effort in preserving Irish Music.

**We will be following social distancing guidelines and will be taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of our volunteers and golfers. We kindly ask you to follow social distancing guidelines whenever you are not with your group on the course. Slainte!**

The Ward Irish Music Archives in Milwaukee, WI is now the largest collection of Irish and Irish American music in North America. Established in 1992, the archives consists of more than 50,000 pieces, including Irish recordings, paper ephemera such as postcards, sheet music and song books, instruments, photos, concert memorabilia, 78s, 45s, LPs, and music recorded on wax cylinders. Documenting the musical community of Irish America is an important endeavor; the pieces in the Ward Irish Music Archives, as well as events, special exhibits, CD projects and our online digital collection, ensure this important part of Irish American history is preserved and accessible to collectors, enthusiasts, students and lovers of music in any form.
